Student from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology took some time out of their MLK holiday to ensure the hungry are fed.
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 50 Mines students spread out across Rapid City to local grocery stores to collect food for the less fortunate.
This is the third year Mines students have participated in the day of service celebrating Dr. King.
South Dakota Tech Senior Nicholas Kelly says that community service is a vital part of the legacy Dr. King left behind, "Service is a good way to put yourself aside and put other people first and if everyone else put everyone else first there would be a lot less trouble in the world.
In 2012 Tech students collected 1,182 pounds of food and $700 in donations for hunger relief in the state.
